Morning workout: 1, Snooze button: 2 = Let’s Be Real

Have you ever noticed that everyone always shares the best version of themselves in social media? While I understand that to an extent, I find it frustrating that people can’t be honest when things are not going as great as they would like. We live in a world where perfection is king…even though it is so unattainable.

That being said, I will honestly tell you that I did not get up and workout today. I don’t even have any excuses, except I was just not as motivated as I hoped. The rest of the week is out for morning workouts, so I am hoping I can get back into the groove this weekend.

As many of us journey to be the best versions of ourselves, I think it is important to be patient with ourselves. Between what we wear, what we eat, how we act, how we perform, how we make others feel…there are several challenges we face every single day. Even though Facebook and social media says you should be perfectly killing it with all these items, the reality is that we are strong women with a lot on our plate.

Next week is a new week. Instead of drowning in disappointment, I plan to celebrate my victories this week like being really great about sticking to 110g of carbs a day.

For those things that have been more challenging (like waking up and working out for me…):

What are some of your victories this week?

  1. I agree with you so much! Not only is it difficult to overcome guilt when you fail at doing something you promised you would, but it is impossible to get rid of the guilt when you are constantly trying to look “perfect” and “more perfect” in front on everyone. Sharing your fails and failures, even small ones, is, I believe, a great thing, unless it develops into an endless and intense mea culpa ritual. I think the best motivation one can get and the best role model one can choose is oneself, but later in the future, when your goal is accomplished and you are feeling so relieved… I’m rambling. Sorry, the post is great, and I think it’s really important to say it out loud how much the obsession with perfect only leads to interiorizing our worst fears and insecurities, leading us to be even less perfect…

    • Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me! In my own way, I am hoping my blog can project truth and reality…we live in such a crazy world where lies to look perfect are more important than truth and authenticity. Here’s to self patience, progress, and HONESTY!
